Was Romney's BIG WIN a Media smoke & mirrors job?
To listen to the pundits and talking heads the packaged message is Romney "sealed " the deal last night.
What does a county by county look show??
There are 104 counties in Illinois.
Romney won only 27 counties.
Santorum won the other 77 counties.
A map will show Romney swimming in a sea of Santorum.
Where did Romney win?
The electers in the strong Democrat counties put him ahead of Santorum.
Chicago, Cook , Cooks Suburbs etc.
He spent about $4 Million in advertising in those counties.
Santorun spent very little by comparison..
In November Obama will out spend Romney in those same counties.
The big difference is the large black wards in these counties. Do you think they will vote Romney?
In the other 77 counties Romney will have real problems getting the social Christian conservatives to vote for him.
GOP loses big in Illinois.
